It'll be directed by Ridley Scott so it has a good chance of at least looking pretty but it won't feature Sigourney Weaver, which is completely not shocking in any way. Also, Steven Spielberg has announced he will remake this prequel in 25 years' time just for the hell of it.
+ Did you know that it's Global Geek Week? Well, it is and there's a contest and everything.
+ Have you heard about "Lost" University? It's being described as a "captivating immersive bonus experience" included in the Blu-Ray release of "Lost" season 5. You'll be able to join "Lost" cast members, producers and "a panel of esteemed experts" as they delve into different facets of the show. Beginning Sept. 22, viewers can register at www.lostuniversity.org.
